The weekend in the Vale

The week is winding down in the Vale of Paradise. So what do we do around here?


It's the second weekend of the musical Assassins at the Chicago Street Theatre featuring some amazing talent. Check out Doogie in the Broadway Revival.


Taking in an independant film that stars a tragic clown. Not sure, but it could be an adaptation of Pagliacci. Found some less than glowing reviews here, here, and here, so it's sure to be a stinker. We're going early in the morning so no one sees us.


Sunday brings new episodes of the best "cartoon" on TV. And I'm not talking about the Simpsons, here. I'm talking about The Venture Brothers on Adult Swim. If you haven't seen it, see it. It brings some of the best characters, villians, and obscure pop culture references around. How obscure? Check out this homage to Brock Samson, bodyguard to the Venture family (voiced by Patrick Warburton). Check out 1:12 where Brock is fighting Bigfoot, and yes, her lover Steve Austin.

See how I brought that all together?

The Venture Brothers is something I have to check is all the rage with the teens...
